Direct air capture of CO2 to clean up our atmosphere
It is not enough to reduce emissions.
It is not enough to get to zero emissions.
We need to get to negative emissions.
It cannot wait.
tons of CO2 emitted by humans so far.
Carbyon uses a fast swing process by means of a continuously rotating drum that consists of activated carbon fibers functionalized with amines.
The fast swing process is the key to lower the energy consumption as well as the cost of the machine.
WE DID IT! 🎉
Carbyon is a Milestone Award Winner in the XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition
Want to learn more about Carbyon? Listen to the story of our founder Hans de Neve in this new podcast episode (for now only in Dutch)
Carbyon is a start-up company founded in 2019 with the purpose of turning direct air capture of CO2 into an affordable and scalable technology.
Our ambition is to reach gigaton scale in the 2030s and substantially contribute to mitigating climate change.
We are a team of scientists and engineers in domains like chemistry, physics and machine engineering. It takes a very tight integration of these three disciplines to find solutions to bring the costs of direct air capture down.
We welcome new partners to our initiative, so please let us know how you think you can contribute.
